Trimble Expands its VRS Network Footprint with the Acquisitions of Can-Net and iBase Networks
Trimble is transforming how and where users can leverage precision and accuracy by:
- Deploying and acquiring networks and services worldwide that deliver high-accuracy positioning nearly anywhere in the world, making Trimble a leading provider of corrections in urban, suburban and even the most rural areas.
- Continuing to advance GNSS corrections technology that enables industries to re-think what is possible when using augmented positioning for improving safety, performance, productivity and operational efficiency, whether in the field or on the road.
- Empowering emerging consumer markets by delivering absolute positioning for passenger vehicles, enabling Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to maintain precise in-lane positioning.
The Can-Net and iBase acquisitions add over 1.1 million square kilometers (over 425,000 square miles) to Trimble's correction services coverage that has grown robustly over the past eight years, contributing to Trimble's shift toward software, services and subscription business emphasis.
The Can-Net network is comprised of multiple VRS networks and single-base solutions offering GNSS corrections across
The iBase network expands Trimble's VRS footprint across both the north and south islands of
"The high-accuracy precision provided by VRS technology is a powerful tool in driving operational and financial efficiency for industries that require easy access to positioning services," said
Trimble networks are supported by a global network operations team made up of GNSS system engineers, geodesy experts and IT professionals. The team monitors the networks 24/7 from operation centers located on three continents, ensuring consistent and reliable service uptime and performance integrity.
